Primary Program

“We chose Children’s Own School as our preschool because of their accredited Kindergarten program. In addition to academic readiness, our child has developed confidence and independence ahead of entering first grade.”

– Jennifer

Our Primary program is the traditional multi-age Montessori program designed specifically for children around three-years-old to six-years-old.  Children are given sequenced lessons intended to increase their skills and independence. When they complete the developmental cycle (three or four years) of a Montessori primary program, children are ready to enter first grade.

Children freely move between all areas of the classroom which include Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, and Literacy. Art, singing, and storytelling are daily experiences. Our school day begins at at 8:30am and ends at 12:00pm or 3:00pm.

Music Program

Singing, dancing, rhythm exercises, and creative movement are part of the daily classroom experience. We work on listening activities, and all primary classrooms are equipped with the Montessori material (the Bells) used to introduce pitch, the musical scale, composition, and reading music. Kindergarteners participate in weekly music instruction led by an early childhood music instructor.

Visual Art

Children engage in daily art experiences in the classroom using paint, clay, collage and colored pencils.
